The Ride:  Another VBC classic attracting may riders!

John was a long-time member of the club. Each year he led a ride with a distance of about the same number of kilometers as his age (that would end up at about 92) on or near his birthday. The weather is ALWAYS awful, but no one cares; the ride just magically shortens up if things get ugly. The group might end-up at the Flying Beaver pub, by the floatplane terminal, to hoist a pint or two to a departed friend.

The Route:  The exact route and pace will greatly depend on the climatic conditions and the mood of the moment, but if the weather man got it right we will make a run for Iona Island via Heather bike route and River Road, return on Cypress.

Meet:  At Terra Breads at the Olympic Village at 1030 (late start to let most of the ice melt)

Distance:  40 to 60 km.

Ride coordinator:  Andrea C.

    Despite not being on the ride, I have it on good authority that 7 riders did go on it. The roads were good, though the mileage didn’t quite match John Hathaway’s age. Nevertheless, everyone raised a pint to him at the Flying Beaver. Big thanks to Andrea for leading.

    Thanks, Gwyn, for the action shot:

    Despite the cold and lingering ice, seven hardy rider still managed to somehow reach the Beaver and raise glasses to John Hathaway.
